Josh Thomson Makes the Best-Worst Anti-Gay Marriage Argument Yet [UPDATED]


(Have I mentioned how the weddings themselves are yet? Because they. are. FAAAAAAAAAAABULOUSSSSS!!.) 

Before we even get started, we’d like to give a big congratulations to the MMA community in general. According to the counter that hangs in the back of the office, it has been 20 business days since once of us said something both mind-blowingly ignorant and completely unprovoked via a social networking device! Twenty whole days…


Thomson continued presenting his airtight argument on his Facebook page:

Look, I personally don’t give a shit who you marry but my question to you is, why is it okay for gays to marry and your gonna turn around and tell the guy he can’t marry the lil girl next door or the teacher she cant marry the lil boy in her class? Siblings, animals, etc. Why can’t they be happy like gay people an heterosexual people?

I’m not against gay marriage, I’m also not for it. I don’t care! I do care what it may lead to In the future once you change the definition of marriage for gay marriage. You can’t say that it doesn’t open the door way for other topics like I mentioned. I know it sounds crazy but people will bring these types of issues to the table once the definition is changed. 

Right, Josh, because two consenting adults choosing to marry one another is exactly the same as an adult snatching up a minor, who isn’t legally old enough to make any life decisions of that importance, or an animal, which has no voice in the matter because it lacks the ability to effectively communicate a stance with us human beings. Your logic is flawless.

[UPDATE] 

Well, well, well…it appears that Thomson is going with an even older standby for his apology than the one he used for his original argument, the classic “It was taken out of context” assertion (Via BJPenn.com):

“I am not against gay rights or gay marriage in anyway,” stated Thomson. “My comments were completely taken out of context by some members of the media and I have since removed them out of respect for anyone who may have been offended. It was not my intention to offend or hurt anyone.”

    It really is the stupidest of the anti-equality arguments. Why in the hell would allowing consenting adults to form consensual family units somehow topple the very idea of consent and force those incapable of consent - children and animals, into marriage with adults?

    Siblings not so much, That has genetic issues, but the multi wife argument has been made before and is valid. And that one also has religious implications which is an actual constitutional right.

    I'm actually too embarrassed for him to be angry. What I'm saying is, I'm actively trying to be mad at him for this, but my brain is refusing to create any emotion except pity. Where was Josh Thomson when I was trying to argue that the mentally handicapped kid in florida should have been allowed to compete in that amateur fight? Josh Thomson is living proof that you CAN succeed in MMA despite being mentally disabled. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if I found out that his name was actually Josh Thompson and he's just been spelling it wrong all these years.

    So, then you'd be cool with sibling marriage if one of them was infertile? I'd be cool with that, but then again, I'm a creeper.

    What did he say that's fucked up , he did'nt bash the gay's. He said allowing men to marry men and women to marry women may create a slippery slope of other non-traditional relationships to demand their right to marry. So the fuck what, he may be right. The ACLU has defended nambla's right to free speech in court and california's laws are basicaly turning pets into adopted people. Thomson's remarks are not that far fetched.

    I say let everybody get married. I don't give a shit what two consenting adults do in private as long as I don't have to watch. It 's not like gay people are going to breed an army of gay people to take over the Earth. The best way to contain the really kooky fundamentalist mormons is to let them inbreed themselves into obscurity in some remote corner of nowhere. I am a bit worried about those freakish human-animal hybrid offspring though...

    Hey, CP, instead of saying some guy is an idiot without actually making a counterargument ("'Fire Bad!' doesn't cut it"), why don't you guys rub your two brain cells together and come up with a legal rule that permits gay marriage yet also justifies continued bans on polygamy and incestuous marriage among consenting adults? Hey, I know, you can't do it. So who are the idiots again?

    Did you read your own post? He equated gay marriage to incest. How is that not gay bashing? You even stated the words "slippery slope!" How is the ACLU defending someone's Constitutional rights similar to this situation? And I'm going to need a source for that California law claim. Not all of us watch Fox News.

    Government should not be involved in deciding the laws about marriage in the first place. It's all about money and if 2 people want some kinda tax break fackin' incorporate.
